[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The pictures shows a male specimen of Lasiommata maera (Large Wall Brown, Braunauge). This butterfly belongs to the Family Nymphalidae (Satyrinae), Linnaeus 1758.
It is a quite large butterfly (37-55mm), living in parts of North-Africa and almost in whole Europe (not in UK). They live in hights up to 2000m and prefer dry and rocky places, close to woods.
Two generations normally, the first End of April-June, the second from July to September. /Source: Wikipeda, in German
In the region I live, they are quite commun and we can see them mostly sitting on stones. I had the chance to catch one on a Skabiosa.
The picture is slightly cropped and sharpened

Very good shot of this butterfly. Nicely composed, razorsharp.
But it seems a little too dark for me. I change it in my WS.
Well done!

Bonjour Anne,
C'est une magnifique image, bien équilibrée, avec deux beaux sujets qui s'accordent très bien. Les couleurs des ailes et les détails de l'ornementation sont très instructifs. J'admire ta patience...

Nuances très bien rendues, les ocelles sont remarquables

Hello Anne,
Fine capture of a male Large Wall Brown. Apart from it being a fresh specimen you have captured it sharply and from a good POV. Composition with the scabious flower is excellent against the OOF natural BG.
They are only single-brooded in sweden, flying in June-July.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Hello Anne,
This is one of my favourites and as you say it can mostly be seen sunbathing on stones! Your capture on a Scabious is beuatiful, both the butterfly and the flower being sharply in focus. I like its pose and details are clear and colours natural. Lovely composition too!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Good work, Anne.
Well composed.
Good light and background.

Excellent focus and light to bring out the detail of a dark subject. I like the composition and the focus on flower is also excellent. The browns of butterfly are rich and well saturated. They look very natural.

Hello Anne,
Excellent exposure and use of ambient light, with rich natural looking colors..
Very nice detail, DOF, and an interesting inner-wing POV in this well composed frame :)
Very well done.

What a wonderful shot, Anne! Very sharp focus and lovely detail! It certainly gives the impression of being an owl or some similar bird! Lovely composition too!
Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Anne!
L' Ariane (femelle) et le Némusien (mâle) ainsi que la Scabieuse sont en effet des papillons et des fleurs assez connus chez nous et on serait tenté de les qualifier d'ordinaires. Ta photo avec sa richesse des détails nous rappelle par contre que rien sur cette planète et encore moins dans ce merveilleux monde de la nature n'est ordinaire!

Hi Anne,
Lovely composition with the flowers creating a diagonal. Very sharp and colourful.
Well done,

Hi Anne

You have captured this butterfly beautifully. What a wonderful array of colours. Congrats! :-)

Hola Anne,
Bonita composición de esta bella mariposa, gran nitidez donde se aprecian muy bien los detalles de las alas, la cabez y antenas, saludos
José Ramón

Hi Anne,
wow...how do you do it?! This is a very impressive shot, perfect composition and detail in this Butterfly, i love the look of that fur (hair??) on it's body. Just the flower on it's own would've made a great shot, but this is special. Very well done.

selam anne, wow excellent shot and very good composition of this lovely butterfly nice pov and bg with splendid colours. Well done ! Regards ridvan

Wonderful shot. Good contrast in colors between the butterfly and the flower. Nice background. Well done. Reid

Bonne journée.

Hi Anne

Beautiful composition.
Gostei muito da borboleta da flor,excelente foco , bom BG.

This is beautiful Anne. The thumbnail doesn't do it justice. Perfect color and sharpness and depth of focus and detail. I love the curves of the stems and the OOF background. Beautiful work.

Truly beautiful capture of this very special butterfly, Anne.
Those eye-spots on the dark brown wings look fabulous.
The flowers add great charm to the composition as awhole.
